Sink Holes Appear Around Lotte World Tower & Hotel in Seoul

Uh oh. Big delays on this project are likely now.

http://www.hotelchatter.com/story/20...Hotel_in_Seoul

Lotte Hotels might come out on top in the race for the largest hotel suite in Moscow, but one of the group’s new hotels in hometown Seoul, South Korea, is having some start-up problems on its way to its topping out. We’ll explain.

Above is a shot of the tower – once finished the tallest on the Korean peninsula, outshining the Hotel of Doom, and sixth tallest building in the world – on the way to its projected 123 stories (556 – 1,824 ft) total height. Floors 86-119 are planned to have a luxury hotel. Construction has hit a snag with news of sink holes appearing around the tower, as well as a nearby lake mysteriously shrinking.

Opinions differ whether it is indeed the construction on the tower that is causing this, but the city of Seoul has denied approval to open a shopping mall connected to the tower, saying Lotte “needs to resolve traffic problems and improve safety at the construction site as well as disaster prevention plans”. A team of lawyers, engineers, architects, environmentalists, and university professors has been asked to provide their opinions on the construction site.

Once these issues have been resolved, everything from floor 70 and up still needs to be built, so we expect it to be a few more years before the hotel will open.

It's LOHT-TAY, accent on first syllable. (First syllable rhymes with "boat", second rhymes with "stay".)

I used to live in the ROK and listened to Lotte TV commercials all the time.

Great building. Have to say though that in general I'm not a fan of a giant building sitting on top of a giant podium in a location where it feels very out of place or isolated. Feels like a monument to itself instead of being an impressive result of demand and constraints in space. Reminds me of this one building in Dallas where we routinely held corporate events. It was a 20+ story hotel, interesting design ... in the middle of a giant surface parking lot. Every time I went there it just felt odd parking my car and walking up to this very tall (relatively speaking) building like I was going to Walmart.

Must say though that despite that, this is a beauty that any city would be proud of.

clearly there are a lot of ways to pronounce Lotte.

I also love the look of this tower, but I think they did a terrible job of tying in the Lotte World Mall into the tower.

It looks ENORMOUS, especially in the more distant shots. It's definitely an attractive addition.

It's very interesting to see how they complete the curtain wall right up to the forming levels...not many tall buildings are constructed this way! This building will be fully clad very shortly after topping out.

Yes! It's a little embarrassing, especially with the signage of the mall -- it looks like something from the 1980s.
